The course will offer an introduction to drawn lettering and the basic techniques of letter carving in stone and is suitable for beginners and for anyone with some experience.
By the end of the weekend you will have drawn and carved a three or four letter word.
I will supply a wide range of sources of lettering to provide inspiration.

My workshops are small and friendly with no more than six students on any course, meaning that you will receive plenty of one to onetutiton. I have many years of teaching experience and hold a a level 4 PTTLS teaching qualification, so you will receive high quality guidance. I have many examples of lettering in my library to inspire you and much experience of lettering that I can pass on.

I feel that I have a responsibiity to be able to pass on my skills, experience and knowledge so that others can benefit from the joy of this wonderful craft and art form.
